Huge thanks to akgrowngirl for sharing this with me!

I’m missing something with this tea. What am I missing? I’m getting zero cotton candy anything, and I suspect there’s some sort of strawberry flavoring in here, because my lips are burning. Huh? I’ll wait for it to cool, since Steepsterites seem to think that’s the best way to drink this, however as it stands.. I’m about ready to dump it. :(

Preparation
175 °F / 79 °C 3 min, 30 sec

I never really got the cotton candy hype.

To me, cotton candy just tastes like sugar. The black tea version… tastes like sugar, and therefore cotton candy. :)

There’s more to cotton candy for me, like an extra strawberry-ish flavour. I should buy some sometime to refresh my memory!

I love cotton candy. It’s just spun sugar with some element of fruit added to it. So, partially carmelized sugar. I waited until it cooled and still got zero sugar anything out of this, which makes me sad.

Interesting… :) I feel a need to hunt down some cotton candy now!

A few years ago, the obsession with tea started. The cupboard got bigger and bigger, more swaps occurred, group buys, secret rendezvous with local teapassionistas… and that’s how you end up with 500+ different kinds of tea in your home. At one time.

Now, it’s purge time. Time to gather what’s needed and let go of the rest. Almost all of the tea was given away, sold, or otherwise shared. A few relics still remain. It’s still a challenge to avoid the chipmunk-like hoarding of The Teas, yet, the lightness of being from having so little compels me more. And so, I’m happy to share (anytime!) and will occasionally desire small amounts of tea for swaps, just to try.

As for the day-to-day stuff, I’m focused almost entirely on Love, (yes, with a capital L), Spirit/Self, transformation, and work (dating columnist and consultant).

No-can-do: lavender, overly floral (French florals, or florals that are creamy rather than, well, floral work well!), sugar, Splenda, all grains.

Love: fruity, dessert, chai, spicy, all types of tea.
